SOUTH SUDAN – OCTOBER 11, 2016: A mother breastfeeds her child who suffers acute malnutrition at the clinic run by Doctors Without Borders (DWB) in Aweil, northern Bahr al-Ghazal, South Sudan. Every week, the DWB clinic attends to some 60 new cases of malnourishment; it registered the highest activity in August 2016 with 90 cases. Since March 2016, more than 70,000 people from northern Bahr al-Ghazal migrated to the neighboring country, Sudan, due to the lack of food and inflation in the market. According to the Food Security Outlook Update released by Famine Early Warning System Network (Fews Net) in September 2016, in Northern Bahr el-Ghazal, some households are in Catastrophe phase level (IPC Phase 5), as they suffer from extreme lack of food, with households facing significant food consumption gaps, high levels of malnutrition and mortality. / AFP PHOTO / ALBERT GONZALEZ FARRAN ***** Woe to pregnant women and nursing mothers in those days. (Matthew 24:19)*****
